The local games give the supporters a chance to see what a Catalan national side would look like, with Sergio Garcia (pictured in action during the game) the star of a 4-2 win over Ecuador.
The Barcelona man scored twice inside the opening 17 minutes and further strikes from Xavi and Luis Garcia sank the visitors, whose response came from Ebelio Ordonez and Giovany Espinoza in front of 67,000 fans.
Deportivo La Coruna striker Diego Tristan was on the mark for Andalucia in their 1-0 success against Latvia in Huelva.
In Pamplona, Navarra thumped Burkina Faso 4-0 with Txiki, De Carlos (2) and Cesar Palacios on the scoresheet, while Basque Country beat Uruguay 2-1 in front of a crowd of 40,000 Bilbao thanks to a brace from Jon Perez Bolo.
The other match saw a Valencian selection defeat Cameroon 1-0 with Atletico Madrid's Javi Moreno grabbing the winner.
